West Charlotte junior running back Jalen “Scoot” Simmons has been selected to participate in U.S. Army National Combine January 7-9, 2010 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The combine showcases the nation’s best underclass football talent and is part of the week-long festivities that lead up to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on January 9.
“It’s a great honor for him, and we’re really pleased,” Lions coach Jeff Simpson said today. “He’s had a difficult junior year because of nagging injuries—a hamstring, groin and hip flexor—and so he doesn’t have great stats, but he’s only missed one game.
"Now, after our season, we hope he can recover from the bumps and bruises and get ready to go have a very good combine showing.”
